Bears’ Briggs remains sidelined by rib injury
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears are not ruling out Lance Briggs for this weekend’s game. They’re also not saying whether the seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker will play against the Dolphins.
Briggs sat out last week’s win at Atlanta because of a rib injury. He did not practice Wednesday, and coach Marc Trestman does not expect him to Thursday, either.
The Bears host Miami on Sunday. As for whether Briggs will play, Trestman said Wednedsay, “We’ll see.”
Trestman also said there’s no indication Briggs has broken ribs. Briggs did not make himself available for comment.
